DSS Raids Dasuki’s Residence, Stops His Trip

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) invaded the Asokoro, Abuja residence of the former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki.

The DSS operatives stopped ex-NSA from leaving Nigeria to receive medical treatment in London, United Kingdom.

Dasuki had already been placed under house arrest at his house along John Kadiya street, Asokoro, Abuja.

This is coming less than 48 hours when a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja granted him permission to travel abroad for medical attention.

No official reason was given for the new development by the DSS but one of the operatives said that they were acting on orders from the above.

The source said the former NSA was surprised when his residence was again raided by operatives of the SSS.

The source said: “The SSS are raiding the residence of the former NSA, Dasuki again.

“We really can’t say why they went there. They were with two of their operational vehicles painted in black and are parked outside.

“You know that the man was to travel to the UK via a Lufthansa Flight on Wednesday night.

“The man had to call off the journey when it was realised that the SSS had gone to the airport to lay siege to him.

“Then, this morning, they went to the house, nobody knows their intention for now.”

It the second time Dasuki’s house is being raided by the DSS. In July both residences in Abuja and Sokoto were stormed. In both invasions, the operatives thoroughly searched the houses before leaving.

The operation was considered to have been authorized by the top hierarchy of the DSS, in connection with the secret probe into how billions of naira allocated for the war against terrorism was allegedly looted.
